Tools to show the UNK table size for a Notes database
The ShowUNK/ItemDef tools allow you to examine the UNK for a specific database to help determine if you are reaching or approaching the 64K limit for the UNK in a Notes database.
Important Note: The ShowUNK/ItemDef tools cited below are provided "as is", unsupported; any problems with these tools should not be reported back to Lotus since they are unsupported utilities. The ShowUNK/ItemDef tools allow you to examine the UNK for a specific database to help determine if you are reaching or approaching the 64K limit for the UNK in a Notes database. These tools will tell how close to the limit a database is, and help customers see how much room they have saved after deleting fields from design elements/documents and then compacting the database. Note: Even if the table size returned by the utility indicates a value below 64k, overhead during processing of the table adds to its size and can cause the noted error. For example, if a table size is indicated as 60k it could still surpass the 64k once the overhead is added. There are no specifics on the additional size that overhead will add.

There are different tools based on what Notes client version your are running (4.x, or 5.x and later). There is no tool for Notes 3.x. If you need to run the tool against a database on a server from a remote client, you must use the Itemdef tool with a Notes 5.x or later client. See the "Running from a 5.x/6.x/7.x Client" section below. Copy the appropriate tool for your Notes Client version to your Notes Program directory. For example, C:\Notes\ or wherever your Notes.exe is. RUNNING FROM A NOTES 5.x/6.x/7.x CLIENT Use Itemdef.exe - Runs on Win32 (Win95, Win98, WinNT), Win32 Alpha, or OS/2 - Can run against local or server based databases.
